9:30 pm
just recently, but consistently, anyone who challenges our city attorney is accused of having something wrong with them. even the pope is not infallible all the time. he is only infallible when he speaks ex cathedra, issues an encyclical, or something along that line. otherwise, he is a normal human being. if you really believe dennis jarrett is infallible, he should represent the city every time it goes to court, because he would never lose. i am glad to see mr. chafee back, and am glad he is talking about the public library and its relationship with the friends. i want to say an old expression the pharaoh's used to use. -- pharoes used to use, "so let
9:31 pm
it be written, so let it be done." you are failing in their actions as a public trust. we will cya. we are doing that because we are covering our own at the same time. for those commissions who dare to cross us, be sure that retribution will be swift, complete, and final. do not dare find us in violation. lastly, what has this board of supervisors done in the existence of the sunshine taskforce to support it? president chiu: thank you. next speaker, please. >> peter were filled, executive director of library users association.
9:32 pm
the folk speaking about the library should be listened to with great care. we heard the library commission, this would be the month when the bernal heights merrill -- mural would be painted out completely, in preparation for its replacement. i am going to use the overhead projector to show you what has been and could be again. the backside of the mural shows the history of bernal heights with a lot of detail. it includes made americans and a neighborhood center across the street. the side panel, facing east, owners working women, in particular women doing cultural, educational, political, and
9:33 pm
medical work, and multiracial hands in friendship at the top. the front of the library has two panels, one at the left of the entrance and one on the right. the one on the left features victor hara. there are words in spanish and english. there is a figure who is or is like roberta flack. this is a picture of the current merrill. this is what the library wants to replace it with. the front is to be replaced with this. the side is to be replaced with this. a tremendous loss of history, social and cultural. president chiu: thank you. next speaker.

9:36 pm
fall we will be there you've got a friend friend to the end ♪ president chiu: thank you. next speaker. >> supervisors, a super dapper new model prototype. cannot get anywhere. i flip the switch. st. francis, how are you doing? you are pulling your hair out, following everything down there. it is in the cloud. the rents are going up 10%, 9.5%. we forgot, you are nice to people. 7.4% voted in our precinct last
9:37 pm
election. heaven has a betting line on who is going to be more or less. you are always optimistic. haven't says we will get more voters than 48 out of 652. 33 years on regulated rent -- unregulated rent. people can move in, but they cannot afford to say -- to stay. it is worse and -- worse than feudal times. market rate apartments are not homes. they are ways for developers to make money. maybe we should change the way to potter's fell = = -- pottersville. is there a way to change? the supervisors are smart. the mayor said to be bold in the year of the dragon.
9:38 pm
you like voting. their rent can only go up 5%. keeps the society healthy. keeps the environment safe in unstable times. it is nice to people. you like the idea of bundling things. condos, apartments, lower income houses in the same building. you are revolutionary. thank you. we are running out of time. >> good afternoon, supervisors. my name is pastorlin gavin. i am here in support of sunshine. 365 years ago today -- i came
9:39 pm
before you. i think your decisions today, in regards to bruce wolfe, who i have sometimes bucket heads with -- president chiu: excuse me. the rules for the chamber are you cannot speak about issues that have been discussed today. we will give you the rest of your time, but if you can speak about sunshine more broadly, thank you. >> i think that your behavior in regards to my case, 11048, against the boy you were supervisors, has reverberated with the people. it will be a historic case. i believe that in my heart. i think the people in san francisco who have yet to find out about it will reflect how
9:40 pm
they feel about this case at the city ballot. i do not think san francisco will ever be the same when the sunlight will truly shine on that case. i have reverence for all of the commissioners. they have been phenomenal in their time. as the body of civilians, i will always respect them, because it took tremendous courage for them to come up with the decisions they did in many of the cases they have had. we have seen what happens with the messenger. in has been a historic moment for you. for those who want to continue as 860 family -- as a city family, the san francisco people spoke in 1999. case 11048, about the phantom 14
9:41 pm
pages, will eventually become the pentagon papers of san francisco. president chiu: thank you. next speaker. >> [speaking a foreign language]
9:42 pm
9:43 pm
president chiu: thank you very much. next speaker. >> i have lived in san francisco for 60 years. i am countering how gene kwan feels. when one of your best allies snatches one of your most viable
9:44 pm
properties, you wonder -- with friends like that, who needs enemies? one person in this room had a lot of trust, and so did the sheriff. we saw what happened to them. it is no surprise with this mayor. maybe we should schedule a wrestling match. it would be a good fund-raising event. i would like to think the board of supervisors for everyone sitting here contentedly. we have chastised the board for walking, eating, etc.. i am glad all of you remembered the citizens are the boss. you are the employees. sit there and take it for a few minutes. in reality, this is what the
9:45 pm
city really feels. unfortunately, not many people have the guts to say it. lombard maybe the crookedest street in the world, but san francisco may be proven the crookedest city in the world. "the untouchables "coke is still being shown. take a look at it. hopefully, some will walk through the front door and slapped down a certain piece of paper. thank you. president chiu: next speaker. >> i am richard. i will be leaving the sunshine ordinance task force as soon as my successor is named. i was one of two votes who voted against the task force rules change the board has found to be objectionable. i want to say there is ambiguity
9:46 pm
in the charter that i think needs to be addressed. it rules that each part of the exact a branch of the city and county, of which the task force is not one -- it does not include the phrase, "of the executive branch." it refers to a board commission. if the language can be reconciled, it will help all boards and commissions, going forward. here is the real problem, as i see it. it does not say whether a vacant seat or an absentee counts as a member for purposes of a majority vote. robert's rules of order was silent on that question.
9:47 pm
i would request the charter language be rewritten. a couple of things i want to clarify. it is unfortunate that the supervisor has chosen to miss characterize the task force reaction to the service. we did not object to it. we objected to the surreptitious manner in which it was commissioned. we also found fault with the survey. we thought it was slipshod. finally, i leave the task force not because i am unable to continue, but because after 10 years it is time to step aside and allow new ideas. i think the supervisor for his remarks. i also want to tip my cap to the deputy clerk. president chiu: thank you very much. next speaker.
9:48 pm
>> blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness. yesterday was the one-year anniversary of the fulfillment of the words of the lord jesus christ in matthew, chapter 24 and 14. he said the gospel would be preached in all the world as a witness, and then the end will come. nothing happened, but something did happen. i am really wondering if this is sufficient to keep coming up here. this may be my last time. i have just with five seconds saying that, did i not? last week, we learned about the best talk show host in the
9:49 pm
family radio. the reason why that is the truth is because it is the only radio station that reads the word of god with no comment. jesus said, "judge not, and be not judged." it will be measured back to you again. cast out the demon in your own eyes. if i was like the sheriff, and by the way, i think sure of mercury me ought to sit at his feet and learn from him -- if i had a fraudulent birth certificate, i would have to cast out the beam in my own eye. we have not had a president. that is a felony. he ought to be arrested.
9:50 pm
i hope the next one does not wind up dead, and the sheriff will not wind up dead, or the guy who wrote "the abomination." president chiu: thank you very much. next speaker. >> hello, everyone. i live in san francisco. i want to thank you very much, supervisor, for entering the disease awareness month resolution into the record. i really appreciate it. thank you for acknowledging my work over the last several years. we caught somebody here at city hall with lyme disease. that is a real accomplishment. that shows that the reason we do this is to help people who find out they may have the disease. in my case, it was the same story. i did not know i had it for 25
9:51 pm
years. it was someone in virginia, online, who told me i had mine disease. i typed back, "what is this?" i had been written in 1981, and a health clinic had said the tech would take it out. i am one of the few people who knows they have been bitten by a tick. they are small. they are as small as poppyseed out there. they are everywhere now. birds are carrying them. animals carry them. it is an opportunity for people to learn that something as small as a poppyseed might be turning their health upside-down. early symptoms include a rash, flu symptoms, numbness, fatigue, pain. developing symptoms are more severe throughout the whole body.
9:52 pm
people who are sick need to see a doctor. a recent buy it needs to be treated with appropriate antibiotics. we have eight people in san francisco who have contracted it already in the city. we have it's spreading all over the bay area. in parts of men casino -- mendocino -- president chiu: thank you very much. >> ladies and gentlemen, i am torn between things. it is a serious issue here. i am not going to sing. i got your attention. i am here to say i happen sharing everybody -- i have been
